Spiced Cookies

A bite of one of these cookies and a lot of spicy flavors start to take over.



200 gr of flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

100 gr of brown sugar

100 g of butter (at room temperature)

1 egg

3 teaspoons of milk

orange  zest



1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 or 4 ground cloves

1 teaspoon ground ginger

a pinch of ground white pepper

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon ground anise

1 teaspoon nutmeg

In a bowl, mix the butter with the sugar until it is well integrated, then add the beaten egg, continue mixing and add the rest of the ingredients, at the end add the flour and mix until there is a compact mass. If you have time, let the dough rest for an hour, so the dough will be well impregnated with all the flavor of the spices.

Then start to mold the cookies, take small pieces of dough and make small balls with your hands. Place the dough balls in a tray lined with baking paper, lightly squeeze them on top with a spoon. Take to the oven, previously heated to 180ºC, for 10 minutes or until they look golden brown.

Let them cool a bit before eating, if you can wait ..;) The smell that they leave at home is really nice and gets us ready to start baking for the upcoming Christmas holidays; they are SO good! Enjoy!
